What Is a Monster Cookie?
Monster cookies are a popular sweet treat that is enjoyed by many. They are large, soft cookies similar to sugar cookies but with a few differences.
They are usually made with oat flour or cassava flour using one of many types of monster cookie recipes that can be found online.
These recipes have common ingredients such as butter, flour, brown sugar, and eggs.
Monster cookies are easy to bake at home but are also readily available in stores. They can be purchased from bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, and vending machines.
What Makes Cookies Chewy vs. Cakey?
The texture of a cookie is determined by how much sugar and fat it contains. The more sugar and fat, the chewier it will be.
Cakey cookies are softer and have a less defined texture. For a cookie to be cakey, you must keep the fat content in check. Otherwise, the recipe will turn out oily.
Chewy cookies, however, are crisper and crunchier with a strong bite. They are typically made with flour that has been sifted to aerate it more than usual, and they contain less fat than cakey cookies.
Can Monster Cookie Dough Be Frozen?
The short answer is yes; you can freeze your monster cookie dough to make mini chocolate chip cookies later.
But there are some things to consider before you decide to store your cookie dough in the freezer.
For starters, keep in mind that freezing causes ice crystals to form in food, and these tiny crystals can result in bland cookies that have lost their flavor.
So it’s best not to freeze anything with a lot of water or moisture in it because this will increase the number of ice crystals formed during freezing.
Next, remember that monster cookie dough contains eggs and other ingredients that spoil quickly.
So it may not be safe to freeze monster cookie dough for more than three months at a time.
Lastly, remember that freezing may change the texture and consistency of foods, so once thawed out, they will probably have changed from their original state (they’ll be dry and crumbly ).
This means they might not bake as nicely as they would have been baked fresh out of the oven, but they still taste pretty good.
